Adanna is a registered psychologist with experience working in the private, public, and not for profit sectors in Australia, London, and Dublin. Adanna’s practice is trauma-informed and draws on a relational, compassion-based approach incorporating evidence-based interventions from Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS) into her work. Adanna is also a provider of Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and is currently undertaking training in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP).
Adanna primarily works with adults and adolescents and has a special interest in supporting members of the LGBTIQ+ community, those who hear voices, neurodiverse individuals, and those who are seeking support for the impacts of trauma.
Adanna believes in meeting each individual where they are at, supporting the fostering of curiosity and compassion towards all aspects of the self, and building empowerment for individuals of all ages to identify and draw upon their own strengths and resilience. Adanna practices with her puppy Juniper, who is training as a therapy dog.
